Mamata supporters celebrate in West Bengal.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s party lost a major state in the elections held at a time of increasing numbers of deaths and infections due to the Corona virus.

The BJP heavily targeted West Bengal during the election campaign, but it was won by the state’s incumbent Prime Minister, Mamata Banerjee, who is a staunch critic of Modi.

He accused Modi of focusing on opinion polls on the elections rather than focusing his efforts on dealing with the outbreak of the epidemic.

Elections were also held in the states of Assam, Tamil Nadu and Kerala, in addition to Puducherry province.
